A boys’ day out

A group of young boys are at Darrell's Island this weekend as part of a self-esteem programme organised by The Centre on Angle Street.

Twenty members of the Just Us Guys Club will fish, play cricket and participate in a host of group activities under the guidance of six chaperones.

The weekend follows a successful inaugural event held on Paget Island earlier this year.

Community worker at the Centre Eddie Glasford said: “A lot of the parents asked us to do it again because the children really enjoyed themselves at the last one.

“Most of the group who registered are repeaters from the last camp we had in May.”

The campers left for Darrell's Island yesterday evening and will return tomorrow.

The club is part of a structured programme that provides a safe haven for youngsters in the Angle Street area of Pembroke. Its aim is to keep children off the streets after school.

The group regularly meets on Friday nights from 6pm until 8.30pm. Boys between the ages of five and 12 are welcome.

For more information e-mail eeglasford@gov.bm or telephone 292-1343.
